The Numark CDN450 is a highly reliable, dual-deck MP3/CD player for DJs needing a no-nonsense, multi-format player for professional use. This ultra-reliable MP3 and CD player is packed with features such as text display, anti-shock electronically buffered skip protection, scratching, and seamless looping. The Numark CDN450 is a perfect player for mobile DJs working events and for fixed installations in clubs, bars, restaurants, and more.
The dual CDN450 plays both traditional CDs and MP3 CDs (which can accommodate more tracks on fewer discs). The player displays text for ID3 tags and folder navigation, so finding tracks is easy. You can quickly access the track you want, bend pitch, and scratch using CDN450's easy-to-use jog wheels. You can even jump forward 10 tracks at a time with +10 search, and for quick access to the information you need, CDN450 has ID3 Tag info buttons.
You can also pitch tracks up and down on 4, 8, and 16-percent ranges for easy beat matching. To further aid, CDN450 automatically detects the BPM on most tracks and has tap tempo for manual BPM entry. When you move pitch, the CDN450's key lock technology keeps the pitch or key constant.
In addition to standard single-track and continuous playback, CDN450's relay and programmable playback modes enable you to set up a sequence of tracks for convenient playback. You can set cue points in real time for creative remixing.
CDN450 also has fader start, which can automatically start cued-up playback when you move the crossfader on a compatible mixer. From the company that introduced DJs to Anti-Shock, CDN450 contains a built-in buffer for worry-free and skip-free performance.
CDN450 is built in an attractive, rack-mount package that is equally at home in angled and straight racks. You can mount the control and drive units together or separately for setup flexibility. It plays CD and CD-R discs for media convenience, and the CD player is housed in an all-metal chassis for rugged, reliable performance. This advanced player has standard analog RCA and digital S/PDIF outputs so you can use it with virtually all speaker and recording systems.

I used a Numark cdn25 for 15years for dj gigs. Never had any problems. The double cd works great for playing that 2nd cd. Blending was easy. The cd readers finally gave out. Bought a new cdn450. I expect the same.
I thought I was getting a good cd player with the works,boy do I feel dumb now! Brought it new and tried to use it at a gig,reads alright on the A side of the player but the B side FORGET IT!!! Didn't even read store CD's let alone cd-r's. DO NOT buy this CD-Player unless you would like to have the same type of problems that I had!!!!Stay Away!!!
I bought this unit a week ago to replace an old American Audio 310 I had for awhile. Racked it up for the first gig and the left deck stopped reading CD's displaying "No Disc" after the disc was inserted. Other than the reliability issue, the search function on this player is horrible. To search a part of a song, you have to use the jog wheel after the search function is selected. If you do not start turning the wheel counter clockwise in time, you will greatly overshoot the desired part of the song. The play and cue buttons are very hard to press as well. I ended up returning the unit today. Do not waste your money.
Used CDN 90 and 88 before, so decided to buy something new. These is the worst cd player I have used. I took it straight back. Will never use Numark products again after these experience.
